House Of Mystery 1934




An entertaining old dark house thriller, complete with hidden passageways, secret panels, bodies turning up, and a killer ape for good measure.

Subject: Nice one. DonĀ“t ask for credibility
I liked the absent-minded Professor and his dominant wife, I liked the more than stupid police officer (although he acted a bit over the top). There are some lacks of credibility in the motivations of some figures. Not that I expected to believe everything what happened but many films of this kind have some sort of "inside credibility" (I mean, in the world of the movie anything is believable which is absolutely unbelievable in real life or in movies categorized as A movies), this one has not.

Subject: watch and smile
This is a way over the top B picture spoof on the well worn "old dark house/who's doing the killings" theme and I defy anyone not to watch it without a smile.
A good role for that old stalwart Irving Bacon as the bumbling detective and interesting to see western icon George "Gabby" Hayes all dressed up in suit and tie.

What a lot of fun! The story is familiar. The plot is a bit thin but the total film is just fun to watch. Good viewing for kids too.

The English nurse and the Scotland Yard detective both had American accents. The plumber is a riot. Other than that, it was a pleasure to see this film and I'm glad it's been preserved.

Not one of the better 'Old House' mysteries here at IA.

I downloaded the 690MB DivX file. The video is good for a VHS rip, though vertical lines are wavy. The audio is fine.
